Stephen R. Potter, PhD, will give a free public lecture on "Antietam and the Archaeology of Tactics" from 4-5 p.m. Saturday, March 28, in the N.C. Museum of History in Raleigh, N.C.
An archaeologist with the National Park Service, Potter will discuss how archaeology provided evidence of Confederate attacks against Union soldiers on Sept. 17, 1862, in Antietam's North Woods, and how it uncovered clues to help identify the Southern units.
This is part of the Joffre Lanning Coe Lecture Series by the Coe Foundation for Archaeological Research. It is cosponsored by three divisions of the N.C. Department of Cultural Resources -- the history museum, the Historical Resources office and the division of State Historic Sites and Properties - as well as the N.C. Museum of Natural Sciences.
